One stamp = Beautiful!

I am wild about our A-size stamp sets, especially the beautiful single stamps. The stamps are a great bargain at $6.95 each, and you can do so much with them! Watch this video for some great ideas.

Why I scrapbook ...

We have lots of "scrapbookable" moments in our house this year. The event that is imminently on the horizon is my youngest son's high school graduation. We homeschooled until Jared was in 8th grade, so he and I (and his siblings) had lots - and lots - and LOTS of quality time together. But the years have gone by in the blink of an eye. I remember my grandma saying to me (on the subject of childrearing) - "The days are long, but the years are short." So true! I just want to celebrate my sweet boy as he attends his last full day of high school.

How did he go from this:

To this in such a short time?

(Was he not just the cutest little guy ever? And such a sense of style!) I'm so glad I took lots of photos and have taken time to put the pictures in scrapbooks to preserve the memories. It's not just a creative outlet - it has been a labor of love.

Love you, Jare Bear - I'm so proud of you and love being your mom!

Cruisin' to 21

We have had a lot of milestones in our family this year. My youngest child is graduating high school, my oldest child is getting married, and my middle child turns 21 today. Here's the birthday boy:

He's holding the card I made him because - well, I couldn't really get him a store-bought card, right?! I used the Mojo Monday Sketch 238 (although I wasn't able to get it posted in time to link). The papers are Cruisin'. Kind of minimalistic, but it suits my boy.
